BOSTON (AP) — Prospective jurors in the death penalty trial of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect are telling a judge they have conflicts that might make it difficult to serve on the panel.

Jury selection resumed Wednesday in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after a two-day delay over a brutal snowstorm.

Judge George O’Toole Jr. questioned 11 potential jurors Wednesday morning.

Most said they had conflicts that might make it difficult for them to be jurors. One woman said she has two children close in age to the 8-year-old boy killed in the bombing.

Three people were killed and more than 260 injured when bombs exploded near the finish line in 2013.

One man said he works for a company that makes emergency notification systems used by police during the attack.
